I share custody of my daughter with my ex-husband. We’ve both converted to a religion other than the one we were during our marriage but we belong to different denominations. I am very interested in having our daughter baptized in my church. Shutterbug’s (SO) Mom asked me at church yesterday what I was planning to do about having DD baptized. I answered that as long as the ex doesn’t agree with it, it wasn’t going to happen….but I’ll keep praying about the situation.
I told Shutterbug about the conversation and we started talking about it. He asked me who I would choose as Godparents for DD when the time came. I said, him and either his Mom or another close friend who attends our church. He said “If we end up together, you’ll have to find another Godparent.”I didn’t understand exactly why it would matter…..and didn’t say anything….but assumed that having your stepfather as your Godfather wouldn’t exactly be kosher and that’s what he meant.
Google confirmed my train of thought.
Wierdness. I love his levelheadedness…..but hearing him say something like that, especially when I’m on a self-imposed “personal wedding talk” moratorium is just…..hmmmm. 😕
